Vintage Christmas




** to answer couple questions: the ribbon is the new seam binding from SU! it's called "ribbon seam binding". For the double bow tutorial can be found HERE**
Ok I just lost everything I typed up in this post. Grrr....


I am not going to re-type everything again. I will keep it short, as it's way past bed time.
I made this card using the Holiday Mini goodies: Bells and Boughs set, Christmas Collage Background stamp, gold waffle paper, always artichoke seam ribbon binding.

The images are watercolored using aqua painter and ink pads.
If you are interested in Watercoloring class I have two options.
In person (couple spots left) will be on September 18th, cost is $25 and will be in my home in Alpharetta, GA. More details -- HERE
Online (no matter where you are you can take this class). Will start on September 20th and the price is $15. More details -- HERE

This is beautiful and my favorite use of this stamp so far! How did you tie the double bow, and is the "ribbon" the seam binding tape?

I love this, but what is behind the bell? is it the crinkled paper or is it ribbon?

This is lovely, and the best use of waffle paper I've seen yet. Thanks for sharing - can't wait for more!!

Ilina this card is totally amazing. You are perfection. Did you use Black StazOn ink before watercoloring?

All good questions and where do we find the answers? lol

You will notice in the post that I have said that I used gold waffle paper, so that is what's behind the bell :))) and yes, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use STAZ-ON when watercoloring!!
